Welcome to Cruden Bay Golf Club
Cruden Bay is traditional Scottish links golf course, originally designed by Tom Morris and Archie Simpson, and only two hours drive from St Andrews, the "Home of Golf". We are a warm and welcoming club that caters for both members and visiting golfers from across the globe. Our experienced pro shop staff, first class bar and catering staff and the club’s administration team ensures a warm welcome to Cruden Bay and promises that your day playing golf in Aberdeenshire will be one to remember.
Our Golf Course creates unique challenges demanding the skills of power, placement and fine judgement upon the discerning golfer. Set against a backdrop of subtly contoured greens and magnificent panoramic views, our course truly justifies its position as 54th BEST COURSE IN THE WORLD in the 2013 US publication Links Magazine. 70th IN THE WORLD in the 2013-14 Golf Digest Top 100, and the Golf World Magazine voted us in 2012 the 2nd Top Fun Course in Great Britain & Ireland.
In November 2012 we were presented with the Golf Tourism Scotland Award for the top Course in Scotland - high praise indeed! In July 2013 we have been awarded the position of 29th in the world from the Golf Course Architecture magazine, by over 240 golf course architects from 28 countries.
We will ensure that your visit to Cruden Bay will be a most memorable one.
For Non- golfers we sit next to a spectacular golden sandy beach, we have Slains Castle sitting high on the cliffs above the village, only 15 minute walk from the course and the North East fishing town of Peterhead is only 15mins drive. Travelling on to Balmoral the Queen's summer residence is only 1hr 15 mins.
